    Little ones up to age seven have a space of their own in the MNS Children’s Museum, including a “town” with six play sets for imaginative minds. Powered by ParentsConnect.com

    The people that work here are fantastic. They take time to explain everything to you and have a great attitude. Great place to take the kiddos.

    Bigger bathrooms with changing tables upstairs. Tiny bathrooms downstairs by the childrens' area makes changing diapers a pain.

    This is a great museum for families! The iMax theater is also really nice, but my personal favorite is the hands-on exhibits upstairs.

    If you are going for B of A member weekend, only the cardholder gets in. Be prepared to pay for additional guests.

    Right now there's a shark exhibit on in the large exhibit hall and at certain times of the day you can view a shark dissection. Its really a well thought out exhibit.

    Really not worth the money. The science center is nice but the children' museum is a disappointment.

    Don't expect too much from the cafe. They only have hot dogs, nachos, salads, and sliced bread sandwiches. Pretty disappointing. :-(
